I agree with Philip. Hollywood Road and some nearby side streets in the Sheung Wan district (Hong Kong Island) is where to look. Many street stalls and also proper shops, but be very careful of copies. Take MTR to Sheung Wan station from where ever you are staying, and exit thru Hollywood Road marked exit. Easy and cheap mode of transport.
As for Malaysia, if you get to Melaka then Jonkers Street is the place. Many shops with blades. Also Lantaka cannon can be found in some.
